PQ Aquatics Club has 3 levels at which team members practice at.


Novice swimmers are our Joy. Technique is heavily the main focus in this group. Drills, Drills, and More Drills! It's important that technique is the foundation of your future competitive swimming career.


Intermediate swimmers have a challenging goal ahead of them. These swimmers can swim, but would need some technique work. Main focus in this group is to improve technique and strength. This will prepare them to have the strength to make it through the endurance work in Advanced "B".


This group can be described as our upcoming A's! Swimmers in this group have excellent technique and some speed. Main focus in this group is to improve strength & endurance. This will prepare them to gain speed when they join Advanced "A".
